However, that's not the web page I remember when we ordered the nucs months ago. One of my favorite sites, archive.org keeps copies of old web pages. As seen herehttp://web.archive.org/web/20121002041214/http://www.dixiebeesupply.com/Dixiebeesupply/Sales__Bees_and_Honey.html
the previous site says "Your choice of medium or deep box" Seems that you should get the box if the page stated it was included when you ordered the nuc. Enough complaining though. I just won't be going back.
Some pics of the $25 nucs sitting on the hives. When we got home we put the nucs on the hives for a couple days to get the bees used to their new home before moving them into their new hive.
